Bruno & Boots: Go Jump in the Pool

Synopsis: Bruno Walton and Melvin "Boots" O'Neal are the most infamous troublemakers at MacDonald Hall - a supposedly prestigious school for boys. Bruno, the brains behind the operation, has managed without fail to convince Boots to tag along on his countless prank operations whether it includes stealing a rival school's mascot, switching the school's flag or invading Miss Scrimmage's Academy for Girls Education and Awakening across the road. Despite their ongoing pranks, Bruno and Boots LOVE their school and are willing to do anything to protect it. After a dismal defeat at the hands of their York Academy rivals at the semi-annual swim meet, Bruno uncovers that MacDonald Hall is perilously close to losing several top students to York (including his best pal Boots) thanks to MacDonald Hall's less than impressive sports facilities. Determined to save their swim program and keep his friends at MacDonald Hall, Bruno goes on a fundraising warpath to build their own pool. Through rummage sales, natio

Founded in 1892.

Over 100 years of tradition,

academic excellence and

preparing boys for leadership.

At least, that's what

it says in the brochure.

That's Bruno Walton.

He almost broke his arm

to get out of a test.

He broke the wrong arm and

still had to write the test,

but, you know. Some people

call him crazy,

I call him my best friend.


That other guy?

The one who knew that

that branch

couldn't hold both of us?

That's me. Melvin O'Neal.

But nobody calls me that.

Let's go.


And for the next four years,

providing we don't get


or worse...

we call this place home.

You can call it Macdonald Hall.

You're all I know

We're discussing everything

In 100 years, not much

has changed at the Hall.

There may be richer schools,

more athletic schools,

more smart-- Smarter schools...

but you know,

that's the way we like it.

There's no better school

than Macdonald Hall.

It has practically everything.

Said oh, whoa

Let's go!

Oh, whoa

Here we go

You're on your own

Lovers come

And they will go

Your shadows

Will seem to grow

I've known beasts

And wild things

I can't control

But what I guess

Is simplicity

Being on your own

Let's go! Come on!

To be alone?

Come on!

Now, you might be wondering

why there aren't any girls her.

That's because

they're across the road,

at the Scrimmage Academy

for Education and Awakening,

where they do...

You know, I'm not really

sure what they do.

But that's the fun stuff.

There's also the not-fun stuff.

And the king of all not-fun

stuff is... The Fish.

No one knows who gave him

the nickname,

but he never blinks,

never breathes,

he once ate a worm, though he

doesn't actually know that,

and his name's

William Sturgeon,

which is apparently

some sort of fish.

Come on, we got classes to get

to and Christmas break to plan.

Okay, Elmer. On three.

Okay? One, two, three!


All right, buddy. Phase two!

Let's do it!

Tradition, exploding banners,

a pair of irresistible


Macdonald Hall has everything.

Well, okay. Almost everything.

Go Macdonald!

Go Macdonald.

Get out there!

Speed. Determination.


That's what you're up against.

So just try and remember

the most important thing:

swim real fast.

Oh, and don't try

and splash too much.

It'll distract O'Neal.

Let's be honest,

he's pretty much

all we got. So...

Swimmers, take your positions.

Holy mother of pearl!

York! Go York!

Easy, partner.

Macdonald who?

Let's go, guys! Hey, when

I say Macdonald, you say?


All right,

when I say Macdonald, you say?

Shut up!

Guys, come on.

Show some Hall spirit.

Are we gonna beat

those York turkeys?

According to previous matches,

the odds are 3789 to 1.

Give or take.

Elmer, what good does your math

do if it just subtracts hope?

Chris, how's the victory

poster coming along?



Don't let them start!

I can't believe it.

I'm so excited!

That is the spirit

I'm talking about--

Pizzaroo Pouches.

The York caf has them!

Sorry... had Pizzaroo Pouches.


I say Pizzaroo, you say?




Knock it off, Burton.

Sorry, Walton.

The only way Scrimmage

would let us come

was to make it an

independent study.

We're going with "Inside a

Losing Streak. The Mental Toll."

Hey! We can always win.

You guys just gotta have faith.

Oh, goodness.

Swimmers, please

take your positions.

Go York!

Go buddy!

Have a good race, Chip.

Have a bad race, Boots.

Go York!

Three, two, one, go!

No! No! I don't

want to do it anymore.

I changed my mind!

Come on! Come on!
